South Hill Car
Accident Attorney

Every year, Washington sees thousands of car crashes, many of which could have been avoided had the parties involved been operating their vehicles more carefully or been in compliance with local traffic laws. South Hill is not immune from these problems. In fact, some of the most dangerous roads in Pierce County, especially for pedestrians, are located in South Hill.

Fortunately, residents who are injured in car accidents can pursue compensation from the at-fault party who caused their collision. Doing so can, however, be complicated, so if you were recently hurt in a car accident in South Hill or somewhere else in Washington, you should consider speaking with an experienced South Hill car accident attorney who can walk you through your legal options.

Common Car Accident Injuries

The types of injuries that a person could sustain in a car accident will depend on a number of different factors, including:

  • The type of collision in which he or she was involved;
  • The number of vehicles that were involved in the crash;
  • The speed at which the vehicles were traveling prior to the collision;
  • The age and general health of the injured parties;
  • Whether the parties were wearing seat belts; and
  • Whether the airbags in the vehicles deployed properly upon impact. 

Someone who was rear ended at a relatively low speed would, for instance, be more prone to injuries like whiplash or another type of neck or back injury. Someone involved in a t-bone crash, on the other hand, may be susceptible to more serious injuries, such as shoulder, arm, or rib injuries, head trauma, and hearing loss. Motorists injured in rollover crashes and head-on collisions can expect to suffer the most severe injuries, especially if those crashes occurred at high speeds. In these cases, it is not uncommon for victims to sustain multiple broken bones, head trauma, internal injuries, and even burns.

Recovering Compensation

Washington is a fault-based auto liability state, which means that negligent or reckless drivers can be held liable for their actions by injured parties, who, if they can provide proof of the other driver’s fault, could be entitled to a wide range of damages, including compensation for:

  • Past and future medical bills;
  • Property damage;
  • Lost wages;
  • Loss of future income due to permanent disability;
  • Emotional distress; and
  • Pain and suffering. 

Fortunately, even when an injured party contributed in some minor way to his or her accident, that individual can still recover compensation under the state’s comparative negligence laws. To learn more about recovering this type of compensation for your own accident-related injuries, please call our office today.
